The parallel/distributed processing with a lot of the idle hosts on the web has the high coot-performance ratio for large-scale applications. It's processing has to show the solutions for unpredictable status such as heterogeneity of hosts, variability of hosts, autonomy of hosts, the supporting performance continuously, and the number of hosts which are participated in computation and so on. In this paper, we propose the strategy of adaptive tack reallocation based on performance the host job processing, spread out geographically Also, It shows the scheme of dynamic host management with dynamic environment, which is changed by lots of hosts on the web during parallel processing for large-scale applications. This paper implements the PDSWeb (Parallel/Distributed Scheme on Web) system, evaluates and applies It to the generation of rendering image with highly intensive computation. The results are showed that the adaptive task reallocation with the variation of hosts has been increased up to maximum 90% and the improvement in performance according to add/delete of hosts.
